The 9th Judgment (Women's Murder Club)

The 9th Judgment - James Patterson, Maxine Paetro While I enjoyed "The 9th Judgment," I really did not think it was as gripping as the previous "Women's Murder Club" books. In fact, I figured out what the "cryptic message" stood for immediately and thus was not at all surprised by its revelation.I think that Maxine Pietro must be taking over more of the writing in these books, as they lack Patterson's usual detail and flair nowadays. Not a bad summer read, but just not as good as the earlier stories.
